Why Haaland gets my FWA Footballer of the Year vote


Sky Sports writer Adam Bett explains his decision to vote Manchester City’s record-breaking striker Erling Haaland as the recipient of the men’s award…

Appreciating a player is not something to be done in the press box, so it is unusual to be forced to do it twice in one season. Both times were for the same player.

The first was when Erling Haaland was substituted late in a game against RB Leipzig in March. The act of mercy by Pep Guardiola didn’t make up for the fact that the striker had already scored five times.

Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte says record-breaking striker Haaland has ‘no limits’ and will keep getting better and better

The second was on the announcement that he had broken the Premier League’s single-season scoring record with his goal against West Ham. Number 35 for Manchester City.

On both occasions there was a sense of witnessing history, something that might not be seen again. And an awareness that if it is, Haaland will be responsible for it.

Watching Haaland live is truly an experience like no other. Had the privilege of witnessing his 22 goals this season.

‘Ker is someone we can count on’

Chelsea boss Emma Hayes from Sky Sports on Kerr’s contribution this season:

“He is such an important player for us.

“Losing Pernille” [Harder] and fran [Kirby] For such a big part of the season, we’ve lost 66 percent of our goal contributions, so Sam has had to find different ways to get involved.

“It’s not just about getting caught in the big moments, it’s all the other stuff. She’s a great team player, she doesn’t always get recognized for the work she does out of authority.

“She’s a super talent, someone who I think has adapted brilliantly. She’s become a player we can count on.”
